To our Military Chaplains and their families

Thank you for serving God and country, and for ministering to the soldiers. You are willing to sacrifice so much so that others might have their freedom and so that our soldiers have someone to turn to in their times of need. There is no greater calling!

Today is Father's Day and we are away from my husband and the father to our four beautiful children. Our daughter created this picture you see above for him from a picture she took in Dallas the day our son was swearing in. He is following in his father's footsteps and will be serving our country as well. His goal and dream is to be a Pararescueman. We know that will require great sacrifice, but we also know he can do it because his dad has always set that example of overcoming anything, no matter how difficult.

I've met several people whose husbands are at the same place mine is today and I want you to know I am praying for you. It's not easy, especially on days like this when you see other people celebrating with their husbands and fathers, but I pray God will give you joy beyond measure today. I pray He will do the same for your children, and that all of us can see God's hand and trust in Him today.

God bless you!
